As a global leader in lifestyle management and financial services for influential individuals, we have developed a new technology to combat Covid-19.
Each day, we are all faced with invisible dangers coming from inconspicuous sources. Ever since the health crisis triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic, Insignia has been making significant efforts to improve the safety of our clients. An unavoidable form of germ transmission occurs through the frequent use of money and payment cards.
Habits are difficult to shift, and scientists have demonstrated that handling bills or plastic function as potential vectors of Covid-19. For example, clinical findings from studies conducted at Queen Mary University, a globally respected research college, offer an indication of the problem. They swabbed the hands, money, and credit cards of nearly 300 citizens, from which they gathered the following facts:
They found bacteria on the palms of 11% of the total group, on 8% of the credit cards, and on 6% of the bills they tested. The same vector operates for viruses, a crucial consideration during the Covid-19 crisis.
We have come up with a hi-tech solution that prevents germs from enduring on specially treated surfaces. A team of medical experts developed our Clean Card, and it features a non-stick, self-cleaning coating that repels bacteria from its specially treated surfaces. Designed to ensure the safety of the holder, we created the Insignia Clean card to keep our members healthy and thriving.
In effect, the technology works by silver-coating money-cards with a layer that – according to stringent tests on silver, ceramic, titanium and zinc surfaces showed that the coating effectively killed up to 99.9 per cent of germs on treated surfaces. Furthermore, because the technology operates mechanically rather than chemically using silver coating won’t contribute to environmental pollution. The tests showed that pathogens do not have time to develop resistance before being destroyed.
As times are changing quickly, we must learn how to adapt to the new normal. And our members’ safety is a guarantee of our collective endeavour.
